RovoCam camera w/ RovoRX-SDI
S/N: K0302617 / K0303154
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
|The AJA RovoCam is a compact 4K
UltraHD / HD block camera. The HDBaseT interface provides video,
power, stereo audio, and RS-232 over a single Cat 5e/6 cable that
can be up to 100 meters distance. This signal is sent to either
the RovoRx-HDMI or RovoRx-SDI receiver. This is built around a 4K
(Sony FCB-ER8300) camera module with back illuminated 1/2.3"
CMOS sensor and Sony image processing. UHD at up to 25/29.97 fps
and 1080P at 50/59.94. The high quality 12x optical (20x digital)
zoom has autofocus and manual focus capability. Can plug-in a 3.5mm
microphone via the rear connector and mount to top cold shoe.
Small size but rugged construction with limitless mounting possibilities
- ideal for tripod, studio, stage, conference room, security,
broadcast, cinema, corporate, and any use you can think of. Compatible
with NC-UNIHB/1 Outdoor Housing.
Image processor functions include: noise reduction (2D/3D), visibility
enhancer ICR (day and night) slow AE, high sensitivity, gamma,
character generator, defog, color enhancement picture effect,
spherical privacy zone masking, e-flip, and more.
The free RovoControl software (compatible with MacOS, Windows,
and Linux) allows you to control multiple RovoCams - with control
of things like zoom, iris, focus. You can even treat this like
a PTZ camera by moving a HD 1080P box around the UltraHD frame,
allowing pan and tilt for HD output. You can also map and control
via PTZ controllers or even video game controllers and USB joysticks.
The RovoRX-SDI is a receiver for HDBaseT signal that converts
to 4x identical 6G-SDI / 3G-SDI output, functioning as a DA (distribution
amplifier). Also has 1x HDMI UHD / HD output. Also communicates
and powers the RovoCAM over HDBaseT and via computer of choice
with RS-232. It even has a stereo audio output.
This includes the RovoRX-SDI receiver, power supply, Cat 6 cable,
USB cable, and RS-232 to USB adapter cable. There is some cosmetic
nicks and paint wear on camera, mainly on edges. One REF IN connector
on the receiver has a chip in it, but still functions normally.
Overall this system is clean and presentable. Fully tested and
in excellent working order. This includes the RovoCam and the
RovoRX-SDI receiver for less than the retail pricing of the RovoCam
AJ-HPX3100G P2 HD camcorder
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
| The Panasonic AJ-HPX3100 P2 HD
camcorder is a 2/3" 1920x1080 10-bit 4:2:2 master quality ENG style
shoulder camcorder. Newly designed smaller/lighter and less power
consumption than the AJ-HPX3000 / AJ-HPX3700. Records in AVC Intra
and DVCPROHD. Worldwide framerate capability of 24P, 25P, 30P, 50i,
and 60i. High sensitivity and excellent s/n ratio. Power is via
Anton Bauer goldmount battery plate or any quality 4-pin XLR power
supply. It can also use v-mount / v-lock batteries by installing
a simple goldmount to v-mount adapter plate. Features include: advanced
gamma settings, film-like shutter controls, HD-SDI output, wireless
metadata input, chromatic aberration compensation (CAC), three level
dynamic range stretch (DRS), advanced 14-bit digital signal processing
(DSP), digital zoom/super gain, one clip REC function, 2 disc/4
position ND/CC optical filter wheel, 3.5" color LCD monitor, and
full customization of image you'd expect in a high end broadcast
This includes the Panasonic AJ-HVF21G 2" black & white
viewfinder. Provides ample resolution for easy focusing. Useful
functions for focus peaking, contrast, brightness, zebra, and
front/rear tally. Includes microphone holder and eyecup.
This comes with the AJ-HVF21G viewfinder. Microphone, batteries,
and power supply not included - as is typical with broadcast camcorders.
This has some cosmetic wear and paint touchups sporadically but
overall gives a clean and well taken care of appearance. The flip-out
LCD has some hairline scratches, which are not visible unless
looking closely while it's off and not noticed when in use. The
LCD is for basic composition and menu operation anyway, not for
the most critical viewing like the viewfinder and HD-SDI output.
This has already been upgraded to the latest firwmare. Hours of
use: operation 301x10, power on 6343. While this may seem a little
high at a glance, this is a solid state camcorder and extremely
well made and taken care of, so this is just moderate usage in
the scheme of a high end ENG camcorder. This is tested in excellent
working order, good sensor, with all functions/features operating
Epic-X Dragon 6K DSMC camera
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
|The Red Epic Dragon is a digital
cinema camera capable of 6K (75fps at full frame and 100fps at 2.4:1).
Also capable of 5K at 96-120fps, 4K at 120-150fps, 3K at 150-200fps,
and 2K at 240-300fps. This DSMC camera brain has the Dragon sensor,
providing improved color science, greater dynamic range up to an
amazing 16.5+ stops, better signal-to-noise ratio for clean images
from 200-2000 ISO, improved low-light capability over the older
Mysterium-X sensor. Redcode RAW files give you the ultimate freedom
and control when finished. Capable for professional use for cinematography
or still photography. Highly flexible and customizable so you can
have just what you need for your production and nothing you don't.
And of course features all the professional connections and features
one would expect from a high end cinema camera. Different lenses
such as Canon EF, Nikon, PL, or Leica-M can be acheived by changing
the lens mount. Control is acheived via Red Side Handle, Redmote,
and/or Red Pro Touch LCD monitor. This records onto Red Mini-Mag
SSD media. Designed to accept interchangeable optical low-pass (OLPF)
filters for different shooting situations. Power is acheived via
a compatible AC power supply, Redvolt in the side handle, or v-mount
/ goldmount battery system with battery plate designed for Red camera.
Includes mini-mag side module (takes the current mini-mags, not
the older/larger 1.8" Redmags). Also includes Ti PL mount (titanium
construction for the heaviest/longest lenses), DSMC side handle
(providing grip, Redvolt usage, and camera control), 2.0 fan upgrade
kit installed, and skin tone highlight OLPF filter installed.
Also has AC power supply and side handle cover plate for when
handle removed. The LCD is not included, only pictured to show
the hour readout. As long as you have any HDMI monitor that will
display the Red menu overlays, you don't strictly need a Red Touch
LCD. The included side handle can access all parts of the menu
- with a few features that need to be assigned to keys as desired
such as playback controls. No additional accessories included
beyond what is pictured.
Cosmetically in good condition with some paint wear and minor
chips / scratches on exterior. Latest firmware version 6.3.106.
Hours of use are 2701, so it has seen some professional usage,
but this realistically is not significant for this well-built
and reliable Epic Dragon. The internal battery that keeps the
accurate date/time code has been replaced. This is dead on most
of these sold and often not mentioned. The battery is located
deep inside and is not easily replaced, so this is a good value
to have this already done. PL mount has some tabs added to it
for ease of lens attachment. All functions, features, connections
are fully tested with a PL lens and mini mag installed, to ensure
this is in excellent working order.

into the bottom of the camera. Clean LCD screen. Good lens optics.
Hours of use: drum 0x10, tape 0x10, threading 5x10, operation
1x10. So this has had under 10 hours of actual usage, which is
quite rare indeed. All functions, features, connections, tape
transport are tested in good working order.
